Hasan Jabed, from Brahmanbaria: It has been alleged that the police are not arresting Md Farooq Mia, the former president of Upazila Awami League and Haripur UP chairman, accused of communal attack in Nasirnagar, Brahmanbaria. It is known that despite the arrest warrant of the court, he continues to move and carry out normal activities. He is even participating in various meetings with the police. Recently, a photo of him participating in a Beat Policing meeting in the upazila's Haripur Union and speaking - has been criticized on social media. Locals complain that Awami League leader and UP Chairman Md. Farooq Mia has a special relationship with Nasirnagar police station. The influence of this Awami League leader involved in communal attacks has increased as he was elected Haripur UP Chairman in the 2021 elections. As a result, despite the fact that there is a warrant against not only him, but his son Sabuj in a drug case, the police are not arresting either father or son. There is suppressed anger in the civil society, including the minority Hindu community in the area. It is to be noted that on October 30, 2016, miscreants attacked and vandalized, looted and set fire to Hindu village temples and more than half a hundred houses in Nasirnagar Upazila Sadar and Haripur villages, centered on the post of derogatory pictures of the Holy Shrine on Facebook. A total of 8 cases were filed in this incident. In one of these cases, the police filed a charge sheet in the court accusing 228 people including Awami League leader and UP Chairman Farooq Mia. Although many got bail in this case, the court issued an arrest warrant against Farooq Mia as he did not appear after the charge sheet. Recently, a picture of Faruk Mia, the warrant-covered accused, who attended the beat policing meeting in Haripur Union of the upazila, was spread on social media. In this, the role of the police is raised in general. However, Haripur Beat Sub-Inspector of Nasirnagar Police Station Rupan Nath said that the UP Chairman was not invited to the Beat Policing meeting as there was a warrant in the police station. He suddenly appeared during the meeting. Later, opportunity for speech was given. In this regard, Senior Assistant Superintendent of Police (Sarail Circle) Md. Anichur Rahman said, "The court has an arrest warrant in the name of UP Chairman Farooq Miar in the charge-sheeted case of vandalism and looting of Hindu houses and temples in connection with communal attacks. A warranted accused cannot attend the police meeting. I got to know this. The concerned officer will be interrogated. He further said, "All criminals are equal in the eyes of the law." He has been ordered to be quickly arrested and handed over to the court.
